Palestinian playwright and director Amir Nizar Zuabi’s Grey Rock follows Yusuf, a former television repairman living in the West Bank who intends to forge his own path to the stars by building a rocket in his shed. Despite a complete lack of financial resources, government support, or scientific proficiency, Yusuf commits to his goal with unwavering conviction. Internationally acclaimed actor Khalifa Natour makes a convincing case as Yusuf, heading up the production’s five-person Palestinian cast. Delivered with English dialogue, Grey Rock is the inaugural work commissioned and presented by the Remote Theater Project, an organization devoted to developing new works by international artists for international audiences.
